Is it just me, or does anyone else think Chiyosakae looks a bit like Kaisei?

Jokoryu's cheeks have the better definition.  The difference in the mawashi coloration creates an illusion which favors the appearance of Chiyosakae's cheeks.

I can see hints of Kaisei around the eyes, but Jokoryu is the stronger resemblance overall, yes.

In future, Naruto-oyakata really ought to pose for these kind of photos in a seated posture: otherwise will he just make his boys look short.

I noticed the same thing: 187 cm (6'2") vs 202 cm (6'8").  When Murayama (168 cm) joined Narutobeya, I thought the picture was showing Naruto congratulating a 4th-grade amasumo champ.

I found it interesting that two stables are getting their first sekitori in the same basho. The previous occurrence of this was in Aki 1993 when Tamanoi's Ohidake and Ajigawa (now Isegahama)'s Mutsuhokkai were promoted. I didn't bother searching further than that (DB queries I used: 1 and 2)
